92 realistic weather icons. Seamless looping animations.

Royalty free for personal and commercial use

Realistic weather effects including animated rain, snow, hail, lightning, sleet, drizzle and many, many more. This set includes pre-made animating GIFs, plus all the original image sequences in lossless PNG format allowing you to resize and rebuild your own animations to suit your own requirements.

Designed by former BBC Weather Centre Graphic Designer Mike Afford originally as an alternative for those wanting to use the old BBC outlook icons without the worry of potential copyright infringement. This set has now been completely rebuilt to include 40 new weather conditions to complement all major weather data suppliers.

Completely re-designed from scratch, but still featuring real Irish clouds throughout (the original BBC weather icons use British clouds!) this 'realistic' weather pack has recently been extended to 92 icons.

New additions include 'hot', 'cold', 'windy', thunderstorms with snow, and hail, tornado, smoke, dust/sand, volcanic ash, and many many more (full list below). You can also re-map these icons to match the World Weather Online weather condition codes and many other data suppliers (See 'Weather Condition Codes' on the right).

All of the major precipitation types are animated using seamless loops so they run indefinitely without any noticible join. The animations have been carefully optimised to get each loop as short as possible while still maintaining a smooth flow of animation. Most loops are either one or two seconds long, with some loops as short as 10 frames. 7 of the 92 icons are single frames - most of these are the stationary (i.e. 'non-windy') cloud backgrounds. A full list with the number of frames in each loop is listed below, and included with the download.

The first frame of each animation has also been used to create a separate 'static' icon set (RE-02, available separately here). The image below shows a (static) preview of all 92 icons at a reduced size. The icons are all supplied at 128x128 pixels.

In this pack you get a single zipped file containing the complete set of 92 weather icons. Each icon comes in a named folder containing an image sequence of individual lossless PNG images, each at 128x128 pixels. Each icon also comes supplied in GIF format, and is set to loop indefinitely when animated. The frame rate is set at 30fps, but you are free to remake your own GIFs from the original image sequences at different frame rates, or with different compression, if you need to.
